RCB-HS manufactures up to 600 packaged products per minute and produces the fold wrap in one wrapping head.
In addition to RCB-HS, LoeschPack produces a version of the R series that can create open folds, producing up to 800 packaged products per minute.
Now the company is working to upgrade the R series to include new format ranges, folds, performance parameters, and for alternative packaging materials such as biopolymer film.
Thomas Cord, CEO, Loesch, said the R series for small chocolate products and bars combines a premium look and product protection for end-to-end hermetically sealed packs.
“The RCB-HS machine has been designed for top performance and handles the primary packaging in modern chocolate production reliably and flexibly.”
“Since its launch, the platform has established itself in the market, and the concept has met with an enthusiastic response in markets where climate conditions demand hermetically sealed packaging.
“Consumers can enjoy products with longer shelf lives and an optimized taste and texture experience.”
Small chocolate bars
The RCB-HS circumferentially heat-seals or cold-seals the packaging material then sealing jaws seal the film against film, ensuring tight packaging and preventing thermal damage to the products.
For a larger format range and reduced output performance, the machine can be used to pack small chocolate bars, a packaging style that is becoming increasingly popular, according to LoeschPack.
In addition to small chocolate items, the latest version of the LTM-DUO die-fold machine also reflects the growing popularity of tightly sealed chocolate bars.
Loesch is exhibiting with its sister company Hastamat at ProSweets in Cologne, Germany, from January 27-30, 2019.
